We arrived safely in Palembang after over 24 hours travelling. It’s been about 33 degrees here which is a big change from back home! The hotel is great and the people are friendly. I became a millionaire here today! I wasn’t able to change my Euro so I took out one million Rupiah from the ATM machine – about €85 haha!

We had a practice run earlier today and the boat being used is the Mastercraft X2. The Opening Ceremony was amazing with loads of TV crews and journalists and there were thousands of musicians, dancers and children who formed a big parade and all the athletes from 24 different countries were there. Qualifying rounds are tomorrow (timetable below the photos). If you happen to go to bed late or get up early you can watch the action on www.iwwf.tv Thanks, David
